I've been wondering at least for 5 years how could a website like Solidot full of uncensored news survive in China mainland without being shut down
@PeterCxy With help of eastern mystery power ? 😅😂
@PeterCxy I have several guesses on its publication of uncensored news articles.
1. Solidot is controlled by CBS Interactive, a subsidy of CBS Corp - a major U.S. media, they also control CNET. Perhaps powerful people in the U.S. in backing its operation?
2. It has limited readership so low that it wasn't a concern by the authorities at all?
3. The authorities decided to allow it deliberately as "controlled opposition"?
4. A MASSIVE HONEYPOT?
I left Solidot because of the last possibility...
